May Irwin Kiss


Published 1896


This "racy" scene is from the New York stage comedy, "The Widow Jones," in which May Irwin and John Rice starred. According to Edison film historian C. Musser, the actors staged their kiss for the camera at the request of the New York World newspaper, and the resulting film was the most popular Edison Vitascope film in 1896.
